When the fog rolls in … the terror begins! This atmospheric fright classic from John Carpenter, the legendary director’s follow-up to his groundbreaking horror hit, Halloween, is a spine-tingling ghost story filled with evil secrets, undead pirates, and lots and lots of billowing, brutalizing fog banks!
“John Carpenter’s The Fog is an often overlooked horror classic that deserves a spot alongside the director’s masterworks, Halloween and The Thing.” – Bloody Good Horror
The sleepy seaside village of Antonio Bay is about to celebrate its 100th anniversary, but the party is going straight to hell, for this seemingly perfect town masks a guilty secret … a past steeped in greed and murder. Exactly 100 years ago, a ship was horribly wrecked under mysterious circumstances in a thick, eerie fog. Now, at the stroke of midnight, shrouded in darkness and sinister fog, the long dead mariners have returned from their watery graves to exact bloody revenge on the unsuspecting residents of Antonio Bay, and it’s going to be a very scary night that the townsfolk will not soon forget! Starring Halloween Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis, Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, Hal Holbrook and Psycho star Janet Leigh. (Dir. by John Carpenter, 1980, USA, 89 mins, Rated R)
